did last time. >> from the get-go, mr. obama promised so many things that i didn't believe he could do it. and he has proven that he couldn't do it. >> reporter: robert stevens is an independent and a obama 2008 supporter. >> it was something different for the country, something that hadn't happened before, with a black president. so i got caught up in that a little bit. but i think he's a disappointment. >> you don't like what you got but you're not sold on the alternative? >> absolutely not. at this point i don't know who i'm going to vote for. >> reporter: tense final days. in a place long known for historic battle fields. >> so close like almost all the battleground what happens in the end what happens on the ground. both parties say they've got a much better ground operation than 2008. the republicans say they've knocked on more than a million doors and they say their early voting numbers are improved. the democrats say no way. they will win virginia again because of this 60 plus offices statewide, latino strags up 19%. and under 60% under the age of 30. the democrats hope will pu

mileage out of it, mr. obama. >> cenk: michael that's a really interesting point. how much does politics play into the reactions of an administration during a disaster like this? >> here's what i explain to everybody. think about this. every disaster always involves the following... at least two u.s. senators, at least one congressman and at least the president of the united states. so for people to believe that politics doesn't play a role or at least politics isn't on the minds of politicians is just being naive. >> cenk: so if that's the case, why did the bush administration screw it up so badly. do you also acknowledge -- you were the former fema director at the time, d'oh but do you acknowledge there were mistakes made and if so, you know, why get something so monumentally important politically let alone policywise wrong in that case? >> well, because i think there were political miscalculations during katrina and there were actual -- how would i describe it? there were actual leadership problems during ka
quickly. this afternoon mr. obama visited national headquarters of the red cross here in d.c. and there he thanked the relief agencies for doing their thing and warned sandy is not done with us yet. and similar sentiments from republican presidential nominee mitt romney. he was in debtorring, ohio today helping volunteers collect food and other supplies for families hit by the hurricane. romney said americans always come together in times of crisis. >>> and one week from today one of the two men will be elected the president for the next four years and of course a lot of americans have decided to take advantage of early voting. and today, maryland governor martin o'malley announced it will resume across the state tomorrow. you know it was canceled yesterday and today because of the weather being so bad and to help make up for the lost time the hours are being extended from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and they're adding a whole extra day for early voting that would be this friday. >>> she may not be a hurricane anymore, but we are still tracking the impacts of what was sandy tonight. thank you f
-storm opportunism. citizens in the northeast aren't turning on their tvs if they have electricity to hear mr. obama opine about subways letting. they're tuning in to hear governor chris christie talk about damage to the jersey shore, mayor bloomberg tell them when bus service might resume. and connecticut governor danell malloy to say when the state's highways might reopen. energetic governors and mayors are best equipped to handle disaster relief because they know their cities and neighborhoods far better than the feds ever will, and they know their citizens will hold them accountable. the feds can help with money and perhaps expertise. the larger liberal fallacy here is that effective government requires bigger government. actually, i think everybody needs everybody but, you know, whatever. >> i think what the world needs now is love, sweet love. so are they saying to the president's opportunistic here? >> making a jab at big government when actually this is the one time the government actually is needed. >> as we said, "the new york times" -- >> do you want to take a look and see if there's more

. we cannot let them get a nuclear weapon. >> mrs. vilsack, president obama has approved the use of unmanned drones to fight terrorists around the world -- that concerns some members of your party. are you concerned about that? >> not particularly. i think it is part of a strategy i am talking about -- there are a lot of different things that we need to be able to do. there are people who will be able to decide when it is the best time to use drones or any of the other tools we have to be strategic and nimble and our response. so i do not have any particular problem. >> mr. king, libertarians in your party have a view of drones that is not terribly positive. what is your view? >> i think the utilization of them to take that leadership of al qaeda has been an effective means in that part of the world. it is a case by case basis. i would not say i would remove the authority from the president to protect us. he needs to have that authority as commander in chief. i am not critical of those. >> a kind of war -- a trade war possibly is spoken of as hypothetical with china, with currenc
many does president obama lead in? 24 of the 24. every single one. and look at the rest of mr. romney's campaign schedule. he's taking the one trip to pennsylvania that republicans always take. but other than that, he was in ohio and wisconsin today. he was scheduled to be in new hampshire, iowa and colorado in the final days. and he just spent the last couple days in florida and virginia. that means the map is not exp d expandiexpan expanding. no the if you can't afford to walk away tr dwrr battle ground states. he's still flogging it out where he has to win. all of this we're going to win stuff is a fake out, it's a bluff, it's trash talk. and there's nothing wrong with it. it happens every year. you should know it's a dependable part of the end of presidential campaigns. but every once in awhile at the end of a presidential campaign, this expected faint, this attempt at a fake out that everybody knows is coming, every once in awhile it's revealed as a fake out. every once in awhile you get from the campaign an admission that they actually know they are going to lose. at least they
, and "new york times" magazine editor mr. sunday morning himself hugo lin gren. as the east coast struggles to get on its feet in the wake of hurricane sandy president obama will be in new jersey this hour to survey the wost of the damage alongside the state's governor chris christie. the deadly storm responsible for 59 deaths according to the app and 59 billion in damage, ripped up boardwalks and left 2 million without power. governor christie has take an prominent role in the disaster recovery but also been content to share the spotlight with the president. despite the fact that christie remains a surrogate for the romney campaign, his praise of the commander in chief storm response has been oversized and unsensored, downright christy-en. this display of bipartisan has created confusion on both sides of the aisle. in today's "new york times" maureen dowd writes that, quote -- white house officials seem a bit flummoxed by christie's bear hug. they speculate christie who always puts chris fi first has decided it's better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue state governor wi
residents in new hampshire regard mr. sununu and his remarks on president obama? guest: governor sununu is a knowledgeable former governor of new hampshire. he was chief of staff for herbert walker bush. he knows national politics and has been doing quite a bit of television on behalf of the republican party. a very smart man, very well respected. certainly, anyone in politics who is on television a lot and is commenting sometimes may or may not say something that they regret. i am not going to judge each one of his remarks, but -- host: has it had an impact on the new hampshire voter? guest: is very well-respected in new hampshire, which is maybe one reason why he has been up front for the republican party. he is among people in new hampshire would tend to listen to. the senator is very popular, and our outgoing governor, the president pass campaign used him in advertising because he is so popular. he has been on the stage with the president. they are using surrogates like that. i think that the president's campaign is very smart to use some of these people like the senator, who is mor

. and president obama did a half an hour chat with them, but at the end of it he said, boot way that's off the record. they said, come on, mr. president, we'd like to hear what you have to say. that kind of back fired and did later release it. the big story is conventional wisdom to endorse the president, but they've instead endorsed mitt romney. >> clayton: not since 1972, 40 years, unbelievable. here is what they had to say about the decision to pick mitt romney. our discussion repeatedly circled back to the single most important challenge, getting the economy out of the doldrums and more americans and meaningful jobs with promising futures and the federal government on track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner which the country demand. which candidate could force the compromises in congress to achieve the goals. when the question is framed in those terms, mitt romney emerges as the stronger candidate and the sentence stuck out for me, the president's best efforts to resuscitate the stumbling economy have fallen short and nothing indicates it would change in a second term. >> st
